  • Was great

    By Ajak29
    I loved it when I first got it but just like every other good app they let you use it then they want you to pay.
  • Don’t buy

    By Holly1.3.3
    I purchased this app end of June for 54.99. Tried to use it today and app said my free trial was over needed to buy it again. Just spent an hour getting a refund from Apple. I like the app but not worth 54.99 every time you try and use it
  • Awesome app.

    By we3lsc
    This does everything. We love this app. I hope future updates only improve it. As some updates make the app worthless. But as for now we love it.
  • Was ok now worthless with out subscriptions

    By cajunhemi
    Paid for this years ago, worked ok for a back up gps and pre planning trips when access to boat electronics were not available. But now the map options are gone and it’s asking me to buy annual subscriptions, when I purchased I didn’t NEED subscriptions only if I wanted to enhance my experience. So can I get a refund or credit for what I purchased that no longer works? It was not a free trial it was paid for. Will be looking into other apps...
  • You don’t get what you pay for, you get much much more.

    By danthefiaherman
    First let me start off by addressing all of the negative reviews about the bad pricing. The app is free and comes with a 2 week trial of Navionics+. Once that runs out, for my area, it costs $9.99 to renew the subscription, that does not auto-renew, for a whole year. Compare that to having to buy a GPS, and loading it with lake/waterways charts and maps, this app is a steal. You’ll be spending hundreds for even the cheapest GPS setups. Yes it’d be nice if this app was free, but you have to remember, it’s someone’s business. Bills gotta get paid, living’s gotta be made. Now onto my experience with the app so far. The app is amazing. I do a lot of kayak angling and don’t have a fish finder on board. I am pleasantly surprised that even my remote area is supported with such detail. This app shows the depths, creek & road beds, underwater obstructions like flooded timber, and much more. All of which are necessary for finding where the fish are. You are also able to download maps for use offline. A great feature, for me especially due to many areas around here not having cell phone coverage. I find myself using this app off the water more than I do while on it due to the fact that I like studying the water before fishing it. Even if I get a fish finder, this app will be launched right beside it because, it has features that you can’t get without a $400+ unit. Great app, hope it continues to grow and help anglers and boating enthusiasts get around.
  • Don’t waist your time

    By notmynickname005
    Paid for and say 350 days to renew yet when I open the app it says my free trial is over and that I need to purchase. I would not waste my money again.
  • Confused...

    By Haarmannator
    What did I buy? Totally confused. I thought I bought a one-time payment product. Now I need to buy more. I missed some sort of discount window. Seems to be a lot of confusion in the comments so I’m not the only one. Overall it’s a decent product but the communication is weak and confusing and forced-pay upgrades are really lame. Not what I expected. Maybe hire a marketing person...
  • Very accurate readings

    By DigitalPhoenix10
    I used this app to navigate through Lake Of The Woods, Ontario. I found that everything was quite accurate, including the depth. Only things I don’t like about it is that the UI is a not really user friendly and it really drains the battery.
  • Navionics Lakes North App

    By Regular customer
    I understand that the support for this app was rendered unusable due to IOS updates and that there are no plans to update or replace. When Navionics decided to market via the Apple Store for IOS products I would have thought the need for updates would have been recognized. So I purchased the App which was fantastic and perfectly suited for my area. When it stopped working I was very disappointed but understood the need for IOS updates and patiently waited. After more than a year I sent and inquiry to Navionics about the status for this App. I was informed that there will be no update to allow this App to work but that other Apps were available, “for purchase”. In reviewing these options I found them not suitable for my Region. I know Navionics has a variety of marine navigation hardware on the market that, for a price, can service my needs nicely. The rub is that I can no longer trust them. I purchased software they offered, then they decided to discontinue support with the option of “purchasing” other Apps. How can I trust them not to terminate support for any of the hardware/software they are marketing after I “purchase” these items. I know Navionics to be a competent provider of Marine Navigation system but can no longer trust their after market support.
  • Kind of confused

    By Chcreel
    I have a navionics subscription on my computer that i use for my depth finder and in order to use the same thing on my iPhone it’s saying that i have to pay for another subscription? Do i really have to pay twice?
